EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

When the Eagles announced the trade of cornerback Eric Rowe last week, coach Doug Pederson said the team wanted to give Rowe a chance to play. The obvious implication was that it sure wouldn't happen here for the converted safety taken in the second round of the draft two years ago. Pederson was a little nicer about it, but what he said wasn't much different from what Buddy Ryan said when bidding farewell to a player. "We're going to let him get on with his life's work," the coach would say, an indication Ryan didn't necessarily think that included the game of professional football.

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

HOWIE ROSEMAN acted far more professionally than I would have. Had a reporter suggested to my face that I had tried to duck him at a news conference, I would have told him to pucker up to my backside. In fact, if I were Roseman, I can think of a half-dozen times during Tuesday's Doug Pederson news conference when I would have gotten out of my seat and said the same thing to the assembled media - sternly adding, "All of you!!!" It was Pederson's day. The former Eagles quarterback and assistant coach returned to South Philadelphia to replace Chip Kelly as captain of the Eagles' ship.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

'CITIES ARE always looking for a hero. Whenever a franchise quarterback comes along, they end up being that beacon of hope. " Malcolm Jenkins was there when Drew Brees put on a cape and saved New Orleans. He was there Sunday when Philadelphia found her hero. The Eagles mortgaged their world on Carson Wentz, a small-school quarterback from Bismarck, N.D., population slightly less than the 69,596 who witnessed his ascension Sunday. Wentz was beating Weber State a year ago. The Cleveland Browns might not be much more of a challenge but that shouldn't diminish Wentz's sparkling debut: 22-for-37, 278 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions.

Now that we have arrived at the first Sunday of another NFL season, would you all please rise for the playing of our national anthem? Oh, say, not you Colin Kaepernick. You can take a knee and then a seat on the bench for the start of the San Francisco 49ers' season against the Rams of Los Angeles again. Really thought you'd be the starter when Chip Kelly became your head coach. What happened to you? Tom Brady, you can remain seated at home. You can even get a sandwich if you'd like.

It is not all that unusual for a rookie quarterback to start on opening day. Two of them, in fact, will do so in Week 1 this season, including the Eagles' Carson Wentz when he goes against the Cleveland Browns at Lincoln Financial Field. It is also pretty typical for some first-year coaches to roam NFL sidelines every year. Four of them, including the Eagles' Doug Pederson, will do so Sunday. Rare indeed is a team willing to open an NFL season with a rookie coach and a rookie quarterback, the surprising combination sprung upon the Eagles on Saturday when general manager Howie Roseman traded Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings.

As Brandon Graham walked from the visitors' locker room to the bus following the third preseason game at Indianapolis a few weeks back, Graham wanted to make a point about the Eagles' embrace of defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's system. "This defense is built for us. The people that's here, the personnel, and that's good . . . You don't have to have a down year to get the personnel here," Graham said. "For us, we've just been licking our chops and happy to be back into this type of defense.

The final price tag for Carson Wentz is rather remarkable when you look at it from the big picture: Sam Bradford, Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, a first-round selection in 2017, a second-round selection in 2018, a third-round selection in 2016 and $10.3 million in dead salary-cap space (for the Bradford and Maxwell contracts). If you figure that the value of the two other first-round picks involved in the maneuvering cancels each other out (the 2017 first-rounder they acquired from the Vikings for Bradford, and the opportunity cost of the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft, which ultimately became Wentz)

When owner Jeffrey Lurie decided to "take back" his team and fire Chip Kelly with one game remaining in the 2015 season, he also opted to take the Eagles back to a time when the power within the organization was better balanced between the coaching staff and the player personnel department. Or, at least, that was the plan. How it plays out might be something else, but the Eagles begin the 2016 season with a far more traditional structure on the surface than the one that had taken hold when Kelly completed a power grab in the third year of his tenure.

Update: The trade was indeed announced Wednesday morning, and it is just for the draft pick . The Eagles are expected to complete the trade of cornerback Eric Rowe to the New England Patriots on Wednesday, a good 24 hours or more after the first reports surfaced. At first, the Eagles were going to get guard Josh Kline and a fourth-round draft pick in 2018 that could become a third-rounder, depending on how Rowe fared in New England. Then league sources said Kline would be flipped for something else, from another team.

Unless the Eagles reacquire either Sam Bradford or Mark Sanchez - circumstances that seem considerably unlikely at the moment - not a single pass will be attempted for the Eagles this season by a quarterback who was on the roster the previous year. At least in the history of this franchise, where one season holds hands with the next in a line of quarterback succession that was not always orderly but was at least discernible, this is a seismic departure from how things operate. The only other time it happened in the team's 84-year history was 1943 when the Eagles combined with Pittsburgh to form the war-year Steagles.

Howie Roseman said after the Eagles set their 53-man roster that the roster was fluid, and the Eagles proved that Sunday by claiming three players off waivers. The Eagles added defensive back Terrence Brooks from the Baltimore Ravens, linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill from the New England Patriots, and wide receiver Bryce Treggs from the San Francisco 49ers, according to the league's daily transaction memo. To make room for the three additions, the Eagles released wide receiver Paul Turner, defensive tackle Taylor Hart, and cornerback C.J. Smith.
